Antoine Bouvard Sr

1870 - 1955

Antoine Bouvard was born at St. Jean-de-Bournay in L' Isere in 1870. He trained as an architect and studied art and architecture under Constant-Dufeus at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris. He became the Director of Architectural Services for the Seine, and was responsible for the construction of the Bourse du Travail and the Boulevard Morland in Paris.

Bouvard was a great artist and his favourite subjects were the architecture and canals of Venice. His work shows the influence of Felix Ziem in his choice of warm colours and the fluidity of movement in his brush strokes. His paintings reflect the outstanding beauty of the city and he captures the unique lighting effects that are found there.

The artist is known to have painted under his own name and frequently under the pseudonym Marc Aldine.
